I spent more than three months photographing Israel and Palestine territories. Throughout many years this was very important place for pilgrims and worshipers of God. It is the place where Jesus Christ was born, crucified and buried. Most of the photographs are made in Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world. History of this Holy City goes all the way back to 3000 BC. There are some of the most important sacred religious sites for Jews, Christians and Muslims.
